Yep. Good backpack. Comfortable to wear and great for when you are out in the bush because of the rear opening. You can slip out of the shoulder straps, leave the waist strap on and turn it around to the front and open it. No need to put it on the ground. Or if you do put it down any muck goes on the front, so when you put it back on any dirt on it does not go against your clothes. I have worn it in pouring rain as well (and I mean torrential) and the waterproof cover keeps it nice and dry. My only dislike is getting something out of the very bottom. The zips don't go all the way to the base, so you have to bend the top right back to access stuff against the bottom. I just put things I don't use all the time along the bottom and that fixes the problem.
I don't have the money for a compact tripod right now, so, do you know if the Manfrotto 055XProB will strap to the back of this pack without being way too big or not holding securely? The weight isn't that much of an issue to me. I'm just worried if they will work together. I know it's a full size tripod and heavy, but it's stable and it's what I have right now. Thanks.

The Think Tank Airport Essentials is a little over $150 but I love mine. Also the Think Tank Urban Disguise 35 v2 with the backpack straps is a great bags.
I think I need something a little more hiking oriented. Thanks for the info.
